Boy, it's really weird seeing my mother, Nanon Millis (Brown) at age 22-ish, dancing across the screen... Especially playing a "mute" farmer's daughter...

A slice of T.V. History
A good example of family entertainment available in 1952 when I was in the 7Th grade. We didn't have T.V. at the time. Lawrence Welk would polish up this type of show and make a long successful run on T.V. The actual show is a little boring. Still it is interesting.
